But some aren't telling it straight. The analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicts the law will give several million people an opportunity to work less or not at all, because they won't be stuck in jobs just for the sake of keeping the health insurance they get from employers.

i'm not quite sure why that is relevant

Actually, they were probably donating to charity, investing in local and state government bonds and making most of their money overseas.

Most of the millionaires who did not pay income tax to the IRS probably still had to hand over a chunk of their change, just not to the U.S. government, many of America's high earners pay income taxes to foreign governments because of profits from overseas investments.

if you were a millionaire....you'd do the very same thing.
by the way.....how many millionaires didn't pay taxes?

Doesn't matter if I post a source, you will still deny the facts.

I was wrong, it was 4000 millionaires.

excuses? what am I supposed to prove?
if you don't know why some millionaires "don't" pay taxes then you'll need to do your own research..........most millionaires not only donate heavily to worthy causes but lead the way in those endeavors....oh...and many millionaires that don't pay taxes.......also include a large number of liberal democrats.

just in case you want to know facts....here's a few for you:

high income earners account for a small fraction (less than 1/2 of one percent) of the 59 million tax filers who did not pay income tax in 2013. The vast majority – 56 million – of the people who skipped out on these income taxes earned less than $50,000 per year. these numbers are part of an ABC news piece written by amy bingham.

From your link:

"The Tax Policy Center estimates that 4,000 households with incomes over $1 million ended up with zero federal income tax liability in 2011. Another 14,000 made between $500,000 and $1 million.
Combined, those households represented just 0.025% of the more than 76 million who did not pay. "

Yep, just as I thought.....thanks for the source.

So it doesn't bother you that 18,000 people made 500k plus and didn't pay a dime in income tax?

You don't understand, Obama's own people said yesterday it is good these people are going to lose their jobs. Quote, "It will give them more time to spend with their children" What the hell are those Obama people smoking? They are totally useless. You can't make that stuff up. They lie about everything, and they make stupid statements like the one above, and they pretend they have everything under control. This is very scary stuff. We have no leadership at all.

I find it funny that some people want to focus on .025% of the 47% not paying taxes as if they are the problem....

I find it funny that Romney was trying to put down some people for not paying taxes and at least 18,000 made 500k and up.
That secret recording cost him the election.

He was obviously referring to the 99.975% of that 47% that he knew wouldn't vote for him because he wasn't offering them even more freebies.........

Secret recordings are great until someone like corrupt ACORN staffers get caught up in one - then it's a low down dirty trick........right?

The Affordable Care Act...

Is anything but AFFORDABLE. And when issues come up, the feds don't CARE.
Without question, Obamacare is one hellava ACT.

If you despise the absolute disaster that is socialized medicine (Obamacare), then stay tuned, things are getting worse!

Federal suported Common Core curriculum is forcing it's way into public schools all across our nation. But the real problem isn't with Common Core curriculum. The real problem is with Obama and the Feds stealing education away from regional and local control. Local citizens are the folks who best know and understand the needs of the students in their area, NOT Washington DC bureaucrats!

Work to stop Obama's plan for socialized public education in America! WORK TO STOP COMMON CORE!
